I agree with that. But when marketing does a sort of 'bait n switch' act it isn't right.

If you ordered Lucky Charms cereal from me for breakfast and I said ok I'll bring you Lucky Charms, but instead I bring Fruit Loops… you might say, hey, I ordered Lucky Charms and if I was Jowood I might say hey, Fruit Loops is cereal and a lot of people like it so here's your cereal…

I guess what I'm awkwardly trying to get across is that Jowood used the Gothic name and delivered a very different product - which isn't a good thing in my opinion. Is Arcania itself a 'good' game? Was Ultima 8 a 'good' game? To me, they weren't terrible. Did they live up to their respective series'? Not in my opinion, no.
If I'm right but there is no wife around to acknowledge it, am I still right?
